For the third time in six months, Royal Caribbean has informed booked guests that it oversold a sailing on its mega ship Wonder of the Seas.
In a statement sent to passengers booked on the seven-night April 30th sailing, the line said “We’re sorry to inform you that due to an unexpected inventory error, your scheduled Wonder of the Seas April 30, 2023 sailing is currently oversold.”
An “unexpected inventory error” was the same reason given for the ship’s other oversold sailings, which were in December 2022 and March 2023.
The affected voyage is a seven-night eastern Caribbean itinerary out of Port Canaveral, with calls to CocoCay, St. Thomas, and St. Maarten.
Guests with flexible travel plans can reschedule on one of two alternative sailings on Wonder of the Seas: the July 9, 2023 or August 20, 2023 voyages — both with the same itinerary as the April 30th one. Those who choose this option will also receive a full refund, therefore getting a cruise at an alternative date for free.
Guests can also cancel and receive a full refund and 100 percent future cruise credit, which must be used for a new booking by April 30, 2024. The final option is to remain booked on the April 30th voyage as planned.
Passengers who used a future cruise credit to pay for their cruise and are canceling will have their credits refunded.
